Christopher Foster - Must learn

If you consider yourself a designer, you must learn 3D modeling and 3D rendering. This is the future and this course helped me get a jump start on the subject

CRYSTAL HOUSTON - Interesting Subject

I come from the manufacturing industry but used to do everything old school. I now see how many advantages the new tools have. Great course.

MARK TWITCHELL - Awesome Quality

I'm really happy I took this course. I have been using Blender but Solidworks is far more powerful than Blender.
